It’s been another month in which the Hodgman Liberal Government has continued to deliver on its long-term plan for Tasmania.

Our plan includes a boost to front-line police numbers with the allocation of an additional 125 police officers across Tasmania announced today. This will see more police in Lyons with an additional 10 officers in Bridgewater, 4 in Sorell and New Norfolk, 3 in St Helens, 2 in Deloraine, and 1 in Nubeena, Oatlands and St Marys.

The Government continues to be able to invest in the services that matter to Tasmania, delivering record investments in health, education and infrastructure including the Midland Highway upgrade, with works at the Perth Bypass well underway.

The eyes of the world will soon be on Tasmania with the World Fly Fishing Championship 2019 to be held in November and December. Twenty-three teams from across the world will be coming to test their skills in our world class trout fishery.

Finally, Remembrance Day will be occurring on 11 November, providing us all with an opportunity to honour the sacrifice of our veterans and ex-serving personnel. Services will be held across the State and I encourage Tasmanians to attend, take a minute’s silence at 11am to reflect, or wear a poppy in remembrance.
